A couple of days ago, I got back from 15 months of active duty with the Army. My home office is a mess. I dumped out all of my bags and my foot locker onto the floor, and I am trying to separate the mess into several piles. Mountains of mail and magazines take up all of the space on my table, and my desk barely has room for my laptop.
Somewhere in all of that mess, I set down my cell phone yesterday, but I have not really wanted to use it, so I have not bothered to look for it. I could probably call it and find it quickly by looking for the vibrating thing (or better yet, let my cats find the vibrating thing), but that means I would have to find my cordless phone too.
Since I have been back, I have had to update a big portion of my address book and I can now actually use iCal. The Nokia 3650 can sync all of these things, and I want the updated versions to show up there. That is, if I can find my phone.
I noticed, though, that I have Salling Clicker running, and it tells me that my phone is in range, so it must be on this side of the apartment. And, if it is in range, I can sync it.
iSync has no problem, and it connects to the phone, updates the address book, calendar, and To Do items. Wireless networking means not only do I not need to find the missing cable, but I do not even need to know where the phone is.
Wouldn’t it be nice if my Mac could point at my phone, or the access point?
